Unfortunately there are lots of things in the release notes, and it
is difficult to know what is important or not. "svn cleanup" doesn't
say much about what it does.

There are also Debian specific problems: in a huge upgrade, the user
doesn't necessary notice that a new major version (with significant
changes and regressions) of some software is installed, unless this
is announced in NEWS.Debian (it usually is, but it wasn't for 1.7).
